I have been working at Medtronic full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Medtronic has pretty good benefits like performance bonus and good health plans. The salary is really not bad when compared to other companies in the area.

Cons

The problem at Medtronic has more to due with the way the company is run locally. The local management are a bunch of yes men. What ever upper management wants the local management just says yes without thinking things completely or caring about what is actually possible for the production personal to do. They make promises that we can not actually keep and when it doesn't get done it's always our fault and not theirs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to see if what you promise is actually doable and don't embark in things without the support of the people who are actually doing the work because if it get done management celebrates because the made it happen but if it doesn't get done it's always the production personal fault and we get punished or blamed always.

    I worked at Medtronic full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits (even though they seem to be decreasing). The working environment decently laid back - some are overloaded and working at a frantic pace, while others are the polar opposite.

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy. Very heavy on management. Receiving credit for rectifying major problems or being an integral part of a "fire fighting" team more often than not leads nowhere. The company seems to be more interested in hiring engineers to do technician work than having a defined role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone has their specified role - so hire for that type of work. Give people the credit they deserve and promote, promote, promote!
